Hot Courts  


Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested
Organizers :   Hans Boerner and Kenny Goodman
 
 
 
 
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

Men' Singles                                 

Date:               Saturday April 15th
Time:              10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location:        Montclair Tennis Courts, Mountain and Colton, 
Cost:               $12 per player
Why:                To prove you can still play singles!
Organizers :    Stephen Graham 
Registration:  Men's Singles Sign Ups


After multiple complaints and feigned exhaustion, we have this year eased the previous requirement to play five setters!  Instead, fast four-game sets with full ad scoring will assure the chance to face-off against each participant. 


Total games won will determine our winners, and prizes will be awarded.  Come and relive your glory days, before you succumbed to that dizzying array of inadequate doubles partners!


​After each mini set, reward yourself with a chance to rest your legs and enjoy some refreshments.  We supply the drinks, and ask you to bring a tasty dish to share.  Ah, but herein lies the rub. 


Guys make for macho tennis, but lousy food!  So consult your spouse or significant other, for a winning culinary suggestion. You will be glad you did as there will be a special prize to the one judged to have provided the best vittles!

​Contact Stephen Graham with any questions.  Don’t miss this one!
